Wouldn’t it be great if our pets talked; what would they say to us? Through eons, many people have wondered about that, and in reality, nobody really knows. But there are exceptions: some pets can achieve something very similar to human speech. And when they do that, people go bonkers over it, but for a good reason: in some sense, it’s considered an attempt at inter-species communication, and since humans are very social animals, we tend to get excited when somebody tries to talk to us.
But enough about abstractions, let’s get to the substance of our post. Zoe, the Bengal cat, is one of those rare cases of cat that broke the inter-species communication barrier, and talks as if she was always a human. Oh, and the exciting thing is not just that she talks, it’s what she talks about. She responds to her owner’s remarks, comments on the things that happen around her, and, last but not least, motivates people with heartwarming messages and wise advice.
Meet Zoe, the incredibly chatty cat
Emily, her owner, said she was always a bit on the chatty side, but she became even more “conversational” during quarantine while the owner worked from home
These photos will show you just how chatty she can get
But she isn’t just talking about birdies. She also likes to give inspirational messages to people
“In case nobody has told you this yet today,” her owner said, and Zoe took it from there
As you can see, Zoe is not only saying what she wants to say, but also what we all need to hear
A wise cat once told me:
While trilling is not technically speech, but more like a tic, Zoe seems to use trilling as a way of communication
Zoe keeps Emily’s company, and Zeke, the ginger Bengal, does the same for Zoe
While Zeke also learnt the intricacies of cat-to-human communication, he’s not as charismatic as Zoe
Together they’re like yin and yang, completing the home they live in
